The record-breaking storms Harvey and Irma, which devastated Texas and Florida, are a warning that the predicted effects of climate change are already occurring. Detroit area groups concerned about the increasingly severe effects of climate change on those Detroit citizens already impacted by environmental injustice, want to know how city leaders are planning for the threats of climate change. Consequently, these seven groups are cosponsoring a candidate discussion with the theme of Moving Detroit Forward – Advancing Environmental Justice in a Changing Climate. This event takes place 6 PM to 8:30 PM on October 5, 2017 (Thursday evening) at the Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium on the campus of Wayne State University Law School. It will consist of separate panels for the candidates for mayor and the candidates for city council-at-large. Each session will start with opening comments followed by questions from the sponsoring organizations. The groups sponsoring this forum are: Wayne State University Political Science Student Association; Wayne State University College Democrats; Detroit NAACP and the Michigan State Conference NAACP; Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice/Detroit Climate Action Collaborative (DWEJ/DCAC); People’s Water Board; Sierra Club Michigan Chapter; Citizens’ Climate Lobby – Detroit chapter (lead organizer).
